Eng367NABLUS (PNIC):-Two Palestinian workers have reportedly sustained injuries after an Israeli settler ran them over in the western part of the occupied West Bank.

Local sources, requesting anonymity, told Arabic-language Ma’an news agency that the victims, identified as Oqab Raji Mahmoud Abed al-Hafith and Ameer Hayel Raji, were struck near the village of Kafr Laqif, located 22 kilometers southwest of Nablus, on Sunday afternoon.

The pair was transferred to a nearby hospital to receive medical treatment.

Sources said Hafith had suffered serious injuries in the head, while Raji has sustained moderate injuries to his head and shoulder.

There have been scores of “hit and run” incidents targeting Palestinians in different parts of the occupied West Bank, with most of them largely going uninvestigated by Israeli authorities. Some of such events have resulted in fatalities.

On March 11, 16-year-old Rushdi Yasser al-Khatib was struck on the road linking the towns of Hizma and 'Anata northeast of the occupied Old City of Jerusalem al-Quds.

Palestinian medics said the teenager had suffered a fractured skull and bruises all over his body.
